Walter Trout has released 22 solo albums over a career that has spanned the globe, and delivered notoriety as one of the great purveyors of the Blues.   At the age of 62, in tribute to friend and legend, the late, great Luther Allison, he has recorded a album of covers for the very first time.   Trout reveals, “I’ve thought about doing this album for years. Luther was one of the all-time greats, and it was just an unbelievably potent thing to watch him perform. Just the energy and commitment that guy had, he was one of a kind. We played together once, and just as we walked offstage, somebody pointed a camera and we hugged and smiled. And that photo is on the cover of the CD.   When he died [in 1997], the idea of this album was planted in my brain.”

Luther’s Blues will be released on June 11th via Mascot Label Group’s Provogue.
